I Work to Protect Oregon Because…
Raised in Oregon by a rock hound and a fisherman who dedicated their careers to public service, I spent vacations exploring magical places like Cape Perpetua, the Steens, Lithia Park and Hells Canyon. As more people discover this special place, creative, sustainability-minded solutions are going to propel our economy and our communities forward together.
Taking care of ourselves means taking care of our planet. That’s why I work to protect a state where all Oregonians can thrive, now and in the future.
